We have a large dead evergreen (bit of a contradiction in terms, what?!) in our yard. We've noticed that it has become a fairly regular resting point for our summer visitors, the Ospreys.

A feathered friend was up there today, hanging on for dear life in the face of blustery winds heralding an incoming storm cell.

It wasn't until I went for the camera that I realized why he wasn't taking off ... he had not one, but two fish in his talons ... and was having trouble figuring out how to proceed without losing one or both of them!

The light was great today - bright-ish sunlight from the side, with dark clouds in the background - allowing me to get the shutter speed high so that these heavily cropped images (200mm on 7D) appear fairly sharp!
